Name of event: Good­night Mr Tom pro­duc­tion by Sum­merseat Play­ers. Where is it?: The­atre Royal, Smithy Street, Ramsbottom BL0 9AT. When is it?: Thurs­day, Novem­ber 9 to Satur­day, Novem­ber 18 (in­cludes a mati­nee per­for­mance but no show on Sun­day). Cur­tain up at 7.45pm. What does it in­volve?: The mod­ern clas­sic Good­night Mr Tom is Michelle Mago­rian’s won­der­fully uplift­ing but equally heart-wrench­ing tale. Set dur­ing the dan­ger­ous build-up to the Sec­ond World War, the play fol­lows young Wil­liam Beech, who is evac­u­ated to the English coun­try­side to live with an el­derly recluse, Tom Oak­ley. They quickly form an un­likely but heart-warm­ing bond as pieces of Wil­liam’s trou­bled life in Lon­don are re­vealed. Then Wil­liam is sud­denly sum­moned by his mother back to Lon­don... Di­rected by Pe­ter Larkin and fea­tur­ing Bob How­ell as Mr Tom, with the role of Wil­liam shared by Joshua Ord and Joshua Parker, this is one not to be missed by all ages*. Who is it suit­able for?: Due to some ma­ture themes in some parts of the play, it may not be suit­able for very young au­di­ences.
